E167: You Don't Need To Starve To Be An Artist W/ Dave Swillum


Let’s bust down the myth that you need to live as a starving artist. On this episode today we talk through many new ways to bring in income from what you have already or reduce overhead cost so we can focus on what we love or design our life to do what we love and have the overhead we feel comfortable with. So many people have given up on their passion because they thought they couldn’t support a family or themselves the way they want but fail to put in place some planning to help them accommodate or make the income they want while doing what they love and take some of the stress and grind off themselves as they build their dream. Brief episode today on someways to approach. You can have your cake and eat it too, you don’t need to starve to be an artist.
